Waterside Retreat: Oceanside Pool With Vanishing Edges

Instead of a traditional wood fence, the landscape designers at Conte & Conte LLC used glass walls to open this patio in Westchester, N.Y. to views of the ocean. In turn, the barriers almost seem to disappear and the swimming pool seems to blend into the water beyond. The result is a space that feels twice as big, with several spots to eat, lounge, swim or curl up by the fire pit.
